This specialty section is devoted to understanding perception and sensory cognition from an interdisciplinary perspective. This includes experimental studies, both fundamental and clinical, in humans and animals, using psychophysical methods, electrophysiology or brain imaging. We also encourage submission of computational studies that further our understanding of perception based on computational neuroscience, AI (artificial intelligence) or mathematical models. Methodological contributions describing new advances in perceptual data collection or analysis are welcome. Theory and viewpoint papers can be considered, if motivated by rigorous scientific arguments.
Areas covered by this section include (but are not limited to):
• visual, auditory, tactile, olfactory, taste perception
• sensory cognition and attention
• multisensory integration
• human, animal, and computational models of perception
• cognitive neuroscience of perception
• experimental psychology and psychophysics
• development and age-related decline of perceptual abilities
• perceptual deficits and sensory rehabilitation
• individual differences
Our interdisciplinary focus implies that we are also interested in:
• theories of perception
• computational perception, artificial perception
• comparisons of human/biological and machine perception
All submissions should make a strong contribution to basic, clinical or applied science. Empirical studies should demonstrate methodological and statistical rigor, with explicit motivation for the choice of sample size, and appropriate reports of effect size and sample variability (standard deviation, standard error, confidence intervals, error bars, etc.).
